Participating in a Miracle
“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord of hosts (Zechariah 4:6, NKJV).
God never asks us to give Him what we don’t have. But He does demand that we give Him all we do have if we want to be a part of what He wishes to do in the lives of those around us!
Remember the servants at the wedding in Cana? They had the thrill of knowing firsthand that water went into the pitcher, but wine came out! They had the unparalleled experience of participating in a miracle! Could you be in danger of missing the thrilling blessing of participating with God in a miracle because, for whatever reason, you won’t give Him all that you have?
The disciples did not know it at the time, but they were on the verge of participating in a miracle because they gave Jesus everything they had found to feed the crowd: five barley loaves and two small fish! As a result, the entire multitude was fed—and blessed!
